Tasmania's first detention centre opens and local knitting club member Mary, a staunchly Christian pensioner, does not welcome the 400 male asylum seekers. Mohammad is a 26-year-old Muslim asylum seeker of the Hazara ethnic group of Afghanistan. He is detained inside the centre and an unlikely friendship develops between Mohammad and Mary after her knitting club donates woolen beanies to the asylum seekers. Mary finds many of her prior beliefs are challenged as her relationship with Mohammad deepens.
Mary Meets Mohammad has relevance to Years 8–10 students in the subject areas of English, Geography and History. It can also be applied to Tertiary studies of Politics, International Relations, Human Rights Law, Social Work, Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Psychology and Mental Health Studies.
